Every time I take the train into the city, I have the same reaction. I miss my commute. Not because I love spending time on the train with thousands of people I don't know (and therefore thousands of potential new best friends), but because of the quality knitting time. I didn't have the right WIP to take with me on the train (the Scandinavian Mittens, while the right size, tend to shed with the white fuzzy yarn and the alpaca, too. The Baby Blanket didn't fit inside my purse. So, I decided to do the only rational thing I could. I started a new project.
I cast on 64 sts on a US Size 1 Turbo Addis (Magic Loop method) and began knitting my Knitting Central Sock Club Socks that just arrived in the mail. You can barely make out the pattern, but it's very nice. This is going to be an easy sock to knit up as I've already memorized the repeats. But those other projects do beg for my attention, so I dont' think this will get my undivided attention. It will be good transportation knitting, though and I definitely will need a lot of that in the very near future.
